2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap @ Square One. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a white head. Pretty heavy herbal/floral hoppy, grainy malty aroma. Fairly sweet pils malty, straw, herbal, somewhat earthy flavor. The flavor and aroma were really overpowering and off putting to me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Square One. Pours a deep gold with a white head. Nose is quite clean, moderate sweetness from pilsner malt. Earthy and herbal/grassy hops. Noted alcohol. On tasting, really bitter. Clean malt, pilsner sweetness and a sharp alcohol note. Clean hop flavor on finish. Pretty dry for the style. Solid.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light gold clear with small head. Bready malt aromas with lineup hops. Medium bodied. A little chewy. Small carbonation. Very long finish with well controlled bitterness. Good but not in the clasic pilsner sense. More of an ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear, bright yellow gold with a small white head and lace. Aroma of crackers, pale malts, grass, hay, and paper. Flavor of pale, sweet, and bready malts, crackers, straw, cereal, and booze. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a malty, boozy mouthfeel. Not bad at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. Clear dark golden-orange pour with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Piney hops aroma with notes of malt in the background. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character that has notes of pine and grainy malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness. Not necessarily what I would expect out of a "Double Pilsener" but it kind of works. Pretty good overall.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery, served in a shaker. SODP pours clear and brass-colored with little to no head. The aroma is very subtle with a touch of sweet grains. The body is slightly soft as a Pilsener should be but the hop bill is most un-Pilsener like. The finish is long and grainy.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a bright yellow ith a white head. Aroma is some swet pils malts nothing great. Flavor is again more of the sweet malts and not much in the way of hops. Nothing great. #1 of sampled at the brewpub.

Tasted 7/23/2007. From the brewpub. Filtered and deep golden hue. Skim white head. Mild nose. Good body and moderate palate. Thick yet smooth. Good light malts. Dry and sticky. Good mix between smooth and dry. Mild yet noticeable burn. Not too bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Golden, but visually solid even with its little head. Stiff aroma of solid grainy malt. Robustly charactered, there’s a pile of alcoholy warming on top of a big malty base. Burns the belly. A big yellow beer ... nice! (#3021, 7/15/2007)
